New Baby Hat Styles

I have finally gotten done a few things I am sending a photographer in Australia. She contacted me and has about 6-8 babies a week to photograph! This makes me so happy because that means I will get my pictures done faster! I love love love getting photos back from photographers.

Anyways, I have been working on a bunch of Merino stuff to send her. Here are a few pictures.

This specific hat was inspired by a picture someone sent me of a baby wearing a gorgeous beanie with a rose and a feather. I had ordered this colorful Merino yarn from a wonderful Etsy seller and decided to use this. I attached a pink fabric rose and a marabou feather to a alligator clip so it could be taken off and put back on if needed for any reason. I just love love love this and I can't wait to see photos of it when it is on a baby!

This is a boy beanie I made out of Merino yarn I got from another wonderful Etsy seller. I love Etsy :] I had this Merino yarn called "Sky Blue Marshmallow" and the cream so I decided to put them together. It came out look really well, I think. I can't wait to see this one a baby as well!

I also made a brim hat and diaper cover set in a light pink with a cream outlining the hat and the diaper cover. It ended up turning out really well. I used 100% organic cotton yarn because I have realized that a lot of people love the organic and cotton as well. It also ended up being really soft and I didn't notice the difference until I went back to crocheting with the acrylic!

Aquarium of the Pacific of Long Beach

Today my boyfriend and I finally decided it was the day to go to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA. My dad has been wanting to go as well so we invited him along and he came which made me very happy because I don't get to hang out with him as much as I'd like to. It was a great day to go because it was during the week and it had been raining in the morning. It ended up not being very crowded which is always a great thing. It is so interesting to see all the fish, sharks, rays, birds, etc.

Here are a few pictures I took of it all!

If you have an aquarium near you, I'd suggest checking it out! I didn't think I would have as much fun and be as interested as I was. It really was an experience. If you have children, I'm sure they would love it too!

Baby Hats, Photography Props, Newborns, Ohmy!

I am so lucky to have such wonderful photographers to photograph my hats on these gorgeous babies! I absolutely love the Newborn Brim Hat that I make and I finally have a picture of it!!!

I think my favorite part of making an item is getting a photo back from it. The photos of the babies wearing the items I made is just priceless to me. So thanks to all the photographers that send me photos!

So Rebecca, you get to choose which color double pom pom hat you would like! Please send me an email at with the color and your address!
